Another Day Another Dollar

October 17, 2016

Hey everyone!! Hope everyone is doing great!! 
Hope everyone is loving life!! 

This week was great... obviously! I didn't get the chance to email last week 
but this week I have time so wooohooo! This week has flown by. I feel
like I haven't even had time to think! We have transfers in the morning!
I got a new assignment!!! I'm going to be the Executive Secretary of the mission!! haha!!
 I'll be moving areas in the morning to the rich part of Fortaleza called Aldeota. 
So for now i'll have two American Companions!! YA America!! I was I little nervous 
when I first saw my assignment but I know the lord doesn't do anything unplanned so
i'll be blessed! 

Me and Elder Grossi have been working so hard here! This past week we have been 
really going at it! He's such a cool kid though and we get along so well, I dont think i've ever met 
a funnier Brazilian in my life! I've learned so much here in Granja Portugal about everything!
So much about myself ,so much about people, so much about the gospel. I don't think I could ever
replace the experiences i've had here with anything else! I LOVE MY LIFE! 

Love ya all!!!!!

Hey Everyone!! Hope life is glorious! 

This week was Great, and it really passed by fast!  What the heck
it's like halloween already! General Conference was this week! Having general conference on the mission is the best thing ever! It"s like Christmas! So many treasures to discover! 
Saturday and Sunday we met with our zone in the stake center and got to watch conference! 
The cool think is I got to watch 2 sessions in English too! Sunday the secratary of the stake set up a t.v. in a class room and all the Americans had a little English conference party which was fun. Watching in portugese is great be I prefere the voice of the prophet:)

One thing I really loved was Elder Neilson's talk about JOY! It was a great reminder for me!
Sometimes I feel like we forget why we are here and what we are doing, but this life is meant to be enjoyed too. Life isn't just homework and work a 80 year period to slave your life away, but we are here to enjoy it! SO DO IT! ENJOY LIFE PEOPLE!! LOVE LIFE!! If your not enjoying it, change something! We find true joy in the savior and his sacrifice for us. This is the true source of lasting joy! We cannot find this anywere else! He's my Joy! I know that! Love you All!!
